All-Clad Copper Core Dutch Oven

This classic Dutch oven has a copper core for supremely even heat that is ideal for slow-cooking meats and vegetables, as well as simmering savory stews. It travels easily from stovetop to oven and then to the dining table. Five-ply construction of securely bonded metals: a thick, extremely heat-responsive copper core sandwiched between two layers of highly conductive aluminum with an easy-clean stainless-steel exterior and interior that won't react with foods. Allows for the quickest heat-up time, maximum temperature control and rapid, even heat distribution. A ring of copper adds a finishing touch to the gleaming exterior. Domed lid promotes heat circulation and locks in moisture. Riveted stainless-steel handles stay cool on the cooktop. Hand crafted in the USA with materials from the USA.

Best pot I've ever owned
July 23, 2015
I've owned a variety of Dutch ovens over a lifetime, but this was my first A-C in the CC line. I had some doubts about whether or not it would be so much better than A-C's standard stainless, but risked giving it a try.
It's really worth the extra expense if you can afford it, because it IS that much better. (I saved up for a year.)
I use it for everything, and everything comes out perfectly, including large batches of authentic Indian basmati rice, a very fragile product. The lid is almost air-tight, so rice is a snap.
It responds almost instantly to higher or lower flames, giving you complete control. It cleans like a dream, and if you refresh it with a Bar Keeper's Friend rub-down (using a soft pad), it gets all its shine back. I've had mine a few years now, cooking with it weekly, and it's as pretty as it was right out of the box.
Yup, I love this beautiful Dutch oven, and can't recommend it too highly.
Pros: Easy to Use, Easy to Clean, Durable, Versatile, Design, Quality, Size, Weight, Color, Shape

Awesome Product
April 4, 2014
I have looked at this Dutch oven for probably a year, but was not sure I wanted to pay this much. Finally 2 months ago I decided I was going to treat myself to something I really wanted. Oh am I glad I did! This is a fabulous product and I use it at least once a week. I cook for large family dinners and this Dutch oven handles whatever I come up with for dinner. It is beautiful, cooks at a lower temperature then other Dutch ovens because of the quality of the pan and it's multi-layer construction. As I write this I am simmering beef short ribs in a red wine sauce for an English Beef pie. The short ribs browned evenly, beautifully and quickly. I deglazed the pan with the red wine, reduced it, added the remaining ingredients and it has easily accommodated 3 lbs of short ribs, a lb of pearl onions and 8 cups of liquid. The oven cleans easily and with a bit of BarKeepers Friend polishes up quickly and looks like it's never been used.
Pros: Durable, Easy to Use, Quality, Easy to Clean, Color, Size, Versatile, Shape, Design

A BEAUTY O BEHOLD
December 20, 2012
This is actually a piece of fine art.
The absolute functionality of copper core is awesome. I have a Viking which REFUSES to do anything but keep a slow boil at the very lowest setting. Copper Core from All-Clad has been the answer, even over my Le Creuset pieces. Heat distribution is beyond what I imagined.
BUT, the second most wonderful thing is that this is A PIECE OF ART! The balance of this piece as well as its solid construction are gorgeous. The FEEL of the piece and its handling are superb. This is my third piece of Copper Core by All-Clad. If you have ANY doubts that Copper Core is worth the extra expense, put them to rest! You will get EVEN heat distribution even compared to all the other All-Clad choices! THIS is my NEW favorite piece of All-Clad and shall probably remain so FOREVER! Oh, the soups and batches of greens I will be preparing. THIS DUTCH OVEN is beyond every cent you lay out and WILL BE in the will for my daughter!!!!!!!
Pros: Durable, Easy to Use, Quality, Easy to Clean, Color, Easy to Store, Size, Versatile, Shape, Design, Weight, art at its finest, a joy to behold
